About Garrett Hill

Real Estate Professional in Austin.

Garrett Hill purchased this house in 2011

Why Garrett Hill chose Austin

This property showcases great space with its 6 bedroom and 7 baths complete with a 550 square foot deck with gas burning fire pits and hard wired up-lights in a massive oak tree. The Betty Jo is a great private place to entertain. Not only is it minutes away from downtown and South Congress district, but it's a short drive to Circuit of the Americas, Lake Austin, and the University of Texas.

What makes this house unique

As mentioned before, the entertaining deck space is truly one of a kind. The amenities, furnishings, location, and contemporary feel make my home something I'm proud to share. The indoor/outdoor space close to downtown is definitely something that makes this property unique.

Great house for large group1

  • 5 of 5

Awesome house for a bachelor party with 14+ guys. Two houses in one worked out great. House was clean and the air was on when we arrived which was great since it was 100+ degrees that day. Very close to downtown and easy for cabs to find. Garrett was very responsive throughout the trip when I had a few questions. Would rent again...

Great property close to everything good!

  • 4 of 5

Recently rented the house for my brother's bachelor party with 19 other guys. The two sides were great, one with a nice, large patio and yard, one with a larger kitchen and living area. Plenty of space for even a party as large as ours.

Close enough to everything if you don't mind a 15-20 minute walk or a 5 minute or less cab ride.

Garrett was great to work with, flexible with our arrival time and was responsive to questions.

Check out the Whip In up the street, very walkable, good low key spot with a lot of great beer and super food.

Accommodating in a peaceful neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Garrett was quick to respond to questions and thoughts we had in planning the trip. Early check-in helped the few early arrivals to hangout and get ready for the weekend. The house itself is large and has two separate units so if you're travelling in a large group, you can split into early sleepers/risers. Very easy to get downtown and SoCo. Would recommend for groups looking to get downtown quick, and also have a day at the house relaxing.

I stayed here with 12 30 somethings for a bachelor party.

  • 5 of 5

House was a great space. Plenty of room to comfortably sleep everyone. We used one house as the main gathering point and the other for more of a low key hang out spot. Very easy to get downtown with a 5 minute uber or cab. You could walk but it took about 20-25 minutes. Garret was very easy to work with and very responsive. Everyone on the trip thought the house was perfect. Would absolutely stay here again if back in Austin with large group.

The Betty Jo is the Best

  • 5 of 5

The house was AWESOME. What a great space. It was perfect for the large group we had, plenty of room for sleeping. We made use of the back yard and open living spaces for hanging out. We thought there was going to be a grill there but we were able to make other plans for food. We spent most of our time out eating and enjoying downtown Austin anyway. Very easy to get anywhere in Austin. We were able to check in early too, that was a huge help. Garrett was great to work with through the whole process. Our trip was a great time and we can't thank you enough!

Great House - Short Drive to Downtown

  • 5 of 5

The property is great with two spacious houses in a nice area close to downtown. We had 14 people at the property and everyone slept very comfortably. It was a short cab ride downtown. The property is a duplex, so keep that in mind if you want your entire group together. It did not bother my group. Garrett was great and very responsive throughout the process. Thanks Garrett!
